While it is quite the long walk, the two games I've attended I parked (sorry dont recall street names) in a parking garage a mile or so away near all the restaurants and shops that are near campus and paid by the hour. $2/hr for 5 hours. Take your pick of tailigaters with whom to join in festivities

I highly doubt they made these closures to control drinking. If you're not in Ann Arbor, you may not know that we've had about 4 inches of rain over the last few days with more on the way. The ground is completely saturated with water. I'm not surprised at all about the closures.

Wheres a good place to go tailgate? Help me out, I was planning on walking around the golf course. Now I have no clue where to go. Do they regulate drinking at Pioneer?

I'm waking at 8am Sunday morn in Korea and will be tailgating with cereal and milk. Everyone is welcome. I'd trade places with the worst tailgate spot in AA in an Asian second

Pioneer grass is open, as I am currently tailgating on it, so at least that portion of the annoucement is not accurate. It looks like a band of showers is coming though, so I am not sure how long they will keep it open.

Pioneer was filling fast at 10:30. Thank goodness we decided to arrive early and try and get a spot because it was almost full. Get here now if you want to give it a shot but it's probably already full. It's a mud mess

its 1 oclock and for those still on their way here do not try to park @ Pioneer its pointless and full by the looks of it. We ended up pulling off a @ a random bank and parking there.
